BioAcoustic Celestial Frequency Report week of August 29, 2016
By Robert G. O’Leary & Sharry Edwards | Institute of BioAcoustic Biology and Soundhealth
Muscles in stress this week:
Editor’s Note: We have all read astrological predictions & some swear by, and plan their lives around, them. Well, not only are the “stars” affecting you; “universal frequencies” (a/k/a “BioAcoustic Keynotes”), are too.
How do they work? Well, everything in your body, and what we put into it, has a numeric frequency (a Frequency Equivalent (TM), or FE, for short). The body is incredibly system-redundant, as shown by how 1 pressure point can address symptoms in different body parts & systems. So, 1 FE can correspond to a muscle & biochemical simultaneously, such as an inability to open a pickle jar tends to indicate a weak lower thumb muscle & also correlates to zinc. Presenting that 1 FE will improve the performance of both.
Light is also expressed as frequency. So when we discuss this, we can say the following: Universal Frequency/ BioAcoustic Key Note = a color = a Frequency Equivalent of a body part and/or biochemical/pathogen/ toxin. Right now, the Universal Frequency continues to be represented by the note of F and the color, Light Green. This means that we are in the fourth part of the color cycle (remember “R-O-Y-G-B-I-V). Astrologically, we are still in the Sign of Virgo. See how this affects YOU by reading below! We would love to hear how and whether anything in our weekly column resonates with how you feel during the week. If so, please leave a comment in the comments section below.
Once again this week, we have a sampling of muscles from every part of the body. This time, we have muscles being affected in the upper body:
Chondroglossus: is by some called its own muscle, and by others called a part of another tongue muscle, the hyoglossus. In any case, it sits next to the tongue muscle, called the genioglossus which passes to the side of your pharynx and comes up from the hyoid bone. This muscle is very small, only about 2 centimeters long. The function of this muscle it work with the hyoglossus muscle to pull the dorsum down and back, as when we yawn.

Constrictor Superior a/k/a Constrictor Pharyngis, Constrictor Pharyngis Superior, a/k/a Superior Pharyngis Superior, and Superior Pharyngeal Constrictor Muscle: is a muscle in the pharynx, which comes up from the back and side of the so-called pterygoid plate and connects with the side of the tongue and functions to constrict a part of the pharynx while swallowing. This muscle is said to be very complex and dynamic in its function. In the swallowing function, a mouthful of food comes into the pharynx. In order for the food to pass, the so-called elevator muscles relax, the pharynx is lowered, and the constrictor muscles then press in on the bolus of food and propel it down into our esophagus. The intestine progressively moves food down into to the esophagus by peristaltic and sphincteric action, not unlike how our food moves through the small intestine.

Platysma is a muscle, we’ve talked about before, and that runs from below your upper chest and deltoid up to the bottom of your face. It can lower the jaw, works in part to bring down the lower lip and form a melancholic expression or grimace. (Source: “Platysma muscle” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platysma_muscle)
Pyramidalis: a small muscle in the lower abdomen behind the Rectus Abdominus that is absent in about 1 in 5 human beings (Source: “Pyramidalis”, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyramidalis);
Obliquus Capitis Superior: a tiny muscle at the top of the neck, approximately in line with the top most cervical vertebrae, or Atlas, that is responsible allowing us to “nod” yes and helps other muscles of the neck to move the head laterally from side to side (Source: “Obliquus Capitis Superior” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obliquus_capitis_superior_muscle);
Obliquus Externus Abdominis: the largest of three flat muscles on the side of the abdomen and responsible for pulling the chest downward and compressing the abdominal cavity, as well as some flexion and rotation of the spinal column and lateral flexion (Source: “Abdominal external oblique muscle” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abdominal_external_oblique_muscle)
Obliquus Internus Abdominus: is one of your abdominal muscles which sits below the external oblique muscle, but above the transverse abdominal muscle. It functions as one of the breathing muscles, acting contrary to the action of the diaphragm and, thereby, reducing the volume of the chest cavity during exhalation. An then when the your diaphragm contracts, it acts to pull the chest cavity’s lower wall downward and consequently increases the lungs’ volume which then fill up with air.
And then, when the internal oblique muscles contract, they compress the abdominal organs, which results in lifting them up into the diaphragm which presses back into your chest cavity thereby reducing the lungs’ volume to produce an exhalation.
This muscle also serves another function, to rotate and “side-bend” the trunk with the help of the external oblique muscle to be able to rotate, for example, the left shoulder towards the right hip.

Lumbricales: muscles of the hand working to facilitate certain hand movement, such as the upswing in handwriting and these muscles are unique in that they connect to tendons and not to bone;
finger muscles that flex the (Source: “Lumbricales of the hand” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lumbricals_of_the_hand )
Interossei Dorsal: Is a set of muscles in the back of our hands. They function to abduct or spread our ring, middle, and index fingers away from one another. It also helps with flexing the joints in the fingers and hand. Source: “Dorsal Interossei of the Hand”
A lot of important biochemicals are in our next list, including a lot of hormones and some important trace minerals:
Vitamins and other biochemicals that are being influenced this week:
Vitamin A a/k/a Retinol a/k/a Vitamin A1: is a form of Vitamin A, but an animal form, but is convertible to other forms of vitamin A. It can be converted into other forms which are essential for good vision, healthy skin, and remineralization of our teeth and growth of bone.
Retinol can be made in the body using something called retinyl esters. It can also be obtained from eating certain things, such as eggs and liver. It can also be synthesized, but must be transported at low temperatures and free of oxygen, so that it does not oxidize. In dietary supplements, it can be stabilized as so-called retinyl palmitate or retinyl acetate. Source: “Retinol” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retinol
Beta and Gamma Tocopherol: Two of the E-Vitamin components; alpha and delta tocopherols being the others. There are also parts of the E-Vitamin, called tocotrienols, that make Vitamin E so good for you.
Chromium: is a chemical element which goes by the symbol Cr and has an atomic number of 24. It has a lustrous, steel grey look and tends to be hard, but also brittle in its texture. The name chromium hails from the Greek word for “color.” It was named this because so many of the chromium compounds have intense colors to them. Initially discovered in 1761, chromium from its most plentiful source: the ore chromite. Chromite is actually iron chromium oxide. It was first used as a pigment.
Chromium has many industrial uses, in an alloy with iron, called ferrochromium allow, as a metal used for lending hardness and corrosion resistance to steel in order to make so-called stainless steel, and chrome plating (a/k/a electroplating).
Chromium is also utilized nutritionally as an essential nutrient which, when used in trace amounts, helps us to metabolize sugar, insulin, and fats (i.e., lipids). The kind of chromium taken in supplement form actually occurs in trace amounts in wine, water, and certain food. The amount of chromium, however, is thought to be very low, although you are likely to ingest some chromium simply by using stainless steel pan, given that a good amount of chromium tends to leach from a stainless steel pan into the food that is cooked in it.
As to how much of this mineral we should take, the U.S. used to state that 120 micrograms per day was appropriate, but in May of this year, the daily value was lowered for some reason all the way down to 35 micrograms. However, supplements can contain much higher amounts, between 200 and 800 micrograms per day. No upper limit to the amount on should ingest of this nutrient has been established as of yet.
When chromium is dissolved in sulfuric or hydrochloric acid, it can cause red rubies or pink sapphires to be made; which one is produced depends on the amount of chromium in the mix, which is iron chromium oxide (FeCr2O4). Chromite is now the principal source of chromium for pigments, for which it is also used today. It comes in red and yellow. For glass making and ceramic glazing, chromium oxide shows up as a green color. It is even used in the military for infrared reflecting paints in order to have the vehicles blend in with green leaves in the environments the vehicles travel through.
Chromium has since also been used as part of so-called tanning salts for tanning leather. Chromium is also used commercially as chrome on car parts, plumbing, furniture, and many other things and its use has been widespread since about 1924.
It is also used in high-speed tool steels, jet engines and gas turbines, et al.
Chromium may have been used as early as the late 3rd century B.C., by the Chinese as coatings for crossbow bolts and swords made of bronze. This coating caused them to oxidize very little over the many years. Source: “Chromium” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chromium
Boron: facilitates building stronger bones, muscles, increases muscle coordination and increasing levels of testosterone, treats osteoarthritis and enhances your thinking skills. Topically, it can be used as an astringent, to avoid infections, as an eye wash and can kill the pathogen that causes yeast infections. It also seems to help the body to utilize minerals such as magnesium and phosphorous. Source: “Find a Vitamin or Supplement: Boron”
Choline: This is not a B vitamin, but is said to be like the B Vitamins in many of the body’s chemical reactions and it is important for your nervous system and a host of medical conditions, such as “liver disease, including chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis. It is also used for depression, memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, Huntington’s chorea, Tourette’s disease, a brain disorder called cerebellar ataxia, certain types of seizures, and a mental condition called schizophrenia… Other uses include preventing cancer, lowering cholesterol, and controlling asthma.” It is made in our livers and can be found in the following foods: fish, nuts, wheat germ, liver, meat, spinach, beans, peas and eggs. Source: “Find a Vitamin or Supplement: Choline” http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-436-CHOLINE.aspx?activeIngredientId=436&activeIngredientName=CHOLINE. It often appears in Vitamin B Complex supplements.
Human Growth hormone a/k/a Somatotropin a/k/a Growth Hormone a/k/a HGH: is a type of hormone, called a peptide hormone. It functions in the roles of cell regeneration/reproduction, and growth stimulation in in humans as well as other animals. It is made in the body’s anterior pituitary gland.
HGH is actually a kind of stress hormone, one which elevates the concentration of free fatty acids and glucose, as well as stimulates the production of something called IGF-1.
One form of this hormone is marketed as a prescription drug, called Somatotropin. It is used to treat growth disorders in kids and adults who are deficient in growth hormone. While it is legal to be used in the U.S. under a prescription, not much is known about this hormone and all of its potential uses and benefits.
HGH is well-known in fitness and sport performance circles as an anabolic agent. It has been used since 1982 for such things, but has been banned in numerous leagues, well before the turn of the century. However, because of the lack of a good test to determine use of HGH by a player, the ban was effectively unenforceable until early in the 2000s, when a test(s) became available that could differentiate between innate human growth hormone in the body and supplementing with it from outside sources.
HGH is also used to elevate dairy cow milk production. Source: “Human Growth Hormone” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Growth_hormone
Corticosterone: is a type of steroid hormone, made up of 21 carbon atoms. It is produced in the adrenal glands, more specifically in the cortex of the adrenal gland. While corticosterone has more of a role for animals, being an important component of energy regulation, stress responses, and immune reactions, it is important for those who have a condition called congenital adrenal hyperplasia and plays a crucial role in terms of our memory function.
This is because this hormone is a precursor to the hormone aldosterone, which has numerous effects on memory – mainly so-called emotional memories (memory influenced by times of stress) and long term memory.
Corticosterone has to do with fear memory recognition. When fearful memories come to mind, corticosterone levels have been found to increase and tend to relieve anxiety. Aside from these 2 types of memory, corticosterone also influences the areas of recognition and consolidation of memories in the psyche, seeming to limit the effect of stress on memory. More research needs to be done in order to refine and confirm these findings. Source: “Corticosterone” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corticosterone
Calcitonin a/k/a Thyrocalcitonin: is a type of hormone made up of a line of 32 amino acids. It is manufactured in the thyroid gland. Its function is to lower the levels of blood calcium and works to counters the effects of parathyroid hormone in the body.
Aside from being made in our bodies, it is made in the bodies of other creatures, such as other mammals, birds, reptiles, and fish. More research has been done for calcitonin’s effects in non-human beings than for human beings.
Aside from being important for calcium metabolism, it also plays a role in the body’s phosphorous metabolism. As a result of its activity in the body, calcitonin helps to preserve our skeleton, particularly during times when it is used a lot, as in during pregnancy and lactation. Calcitonin may also have some role in regulating appetite and feeding. Source: “Calcitonin” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calcitonin
Ferrous Succinate: is a kind of iron supplement. There are 2 different forms of iron used for dietary purposes. One is called heme iron and non-heme iron. The first type means that iron is bound to the oxygen-transporting protein in our blood, called hemoglobin. Non-heme means that the iron is not attached to hemoglobin.
Heme iron is said to the most absorbable type of iron, as much as 35% compared to 0.9% to 2.9% for non-heme iron options. It also has advantages over the non-heme options because they can cause flatulence, nausea, and diarrhea.

We have a substantial number of medicines being influenced bioacoustically this week, in our next list
Medicines that are being affected this week:
Morphine: is an opiate-style pain medication sold under numerous trade names. It operates by influencing the central nervous system in order to decrease the sensation of pain, bet it chronic or acute (although I imagine most suffering from this pain would say that there is nothing “cute” about it).
Common uses of this medication are during labor and myocardial infarction. It is administered through an IV or by injection, rectally (“ouch”) or into the space surrounding the spinal cord (again “ouch”).
There are potentially serious side effects to use of this medicine, namely: low blood pressure, and decreased respiratory effort. Common side effects include vomiting, constipation, and drowsiness. Caution is urged for those who are breast feeding or pregnant, as it will affect the child.
As you have probably heard, it is potentially very addictive and has a high potential for abuse, and users can be susceptible for withdrawal after long-term use. Morphine is derived from a plant, the poppy straw of the opium poppy. In fact, when this active ingredient was isolated from its plant, by Friedrich Serturner between 1803 and 1805, it was the first time this had ever been done. Serturner called it “morphine” in honor of the Greek god of dreams, Morpheus, and the fact that morphine could sometimes induce a sleep state. Twenty-two (22) years later, the company Merck started to market morphine commercially.
Only 30% of morphine is actually used for pain relief, with the other 70% being used for production of other opioids, like heroin, oxycodone, and hydromorphone. Morphine is considered a Schedule II drug in the U.S. and is on the WHO Model List of Essential Medicines. Source: “Morphine” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morphine
Other medications listed this week are the following: Acyclovir, Albuterol, Alprenolol, Amphotericin B, Atenolol, AZT, Benazepril, Bepridil, Bitolterol, Buspirone, Candesartan, Cilazapril, Cimetidine, Dilantin, DMAE, Enalapril, Formoterol, Gabapentin, Galantamine, Hydergine, Irbesartan, Isoprinosine, Isradipine, Labetolol, Meoxipril, Mescaline, Metaproterenol, Metoprolol, Minoxidil, Nicardipine, Nifedipine, Nimodipine, Oxiracetam, Paramectol, Penbutolol, Pentoxifylline, Perindopril, Pindolol, Piracetam, Propranolol, Quinapril, Ramipril, Salmeterol, Telmisratan, Terbtaline, Theophylline, Trandolapril, Velsartan, Vigabatrin, and Vinpocetine.
Pathogens that are active this week:
Herpes Simplex: is a type of viral disease caused by the herpes simplex virus, an infection which affects people in different parts of the body and is categorized, typically by a number after the name, based upon where the virus manifests on the body. This particular version of the Herpes Simplex Virus is “oral” in nature, causing cold sores or fever blisters or simply a sore throat.
The virus manifests in cycles, manifesting with sores for a time and then going latent in the body. Over time, the active disease diminishes in severity and frequency.
Herpes Simplex is communicated by direct contact with lesions or body fluids from an infected individual and even may occur when an infected person is asymptomatic. There his allegedly no cure for herpes, but there is a daily antiviral medication which can reportedly reduce the spread of the disease. Sufferers may use acetaminophen and lidocaine in order to help with the symptoms and acyclovir or valacicolovir are medications which may be used to reduce the level of severity of symptoms during flare-ups.
Herpes simplex virus is claimed to affect between a whopping 60% and 95% of adults. Most of the people suffering with HSV-2 do not even realize that they have been infected. Source: “Herpes Simplex” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herpes_simples
Human Papilloma Virus: A couple of the Human Papilloma Viruses are in play this week, those being HPV 10 and 29, 31, and 42.
Toxins that are active this week:
Cyanide: is not one thing; it is any type of chemical compound with a particular chemical combination, of a carbon atom which is “triple bonded” with a nitrogen atom, which makes it a so-called cyano group. Cyano groups can be inorganic or organic. Examples of inorganic cyanides are sodium cyanide and potassium cyanide which are a type of salt, but which are very toxic. Organic cyanides are typically called nitriles. Because they do not release cyanide ions, organic ions are for the most part less toxic, and when used as insoluble polymer, such as in acrylic fibers, nontoxic unless they material is burned.
There is a liquid version of cyanide, hydrocyanic acid, also known as HCN or hydrogen cyanide. It is very volatile and used to make acrylonitrile, which is used to make synthetic rubber, plastics, and acrylic fibers.
Cyanides are also used for fumigation, hardening of steel and iron, electroplating, etc. Cyanides are naturally present in certain seeds, such as the cherry and apple. Source: “Cyanide” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyanide
